    so I'm having some issues installing a game i bought, its come on a disk and I've put it into my superdrive usb and its not giving me the usual pop up but it does put a little cd icon on my desktop.

    when i click the icon on my desktop i get this: http://gyazo.com/9d0baed6c874b8fd528b2d89f3b8715c now no matter what i click on i get this error: http://gyazo.com/a2688cbe20f9dfd7fe1bfd78b3b3a2dd

    what do i do? how do i fix it or get it to install?

    if you need any more information than I've given let me know

    Looks like you bought a windows game that you're trying to run in OSX which you cannot do. Windows programs will not run in OSX.

    Then you got the wrong item. Those are Windows files.
